Having problems with your Leica D-lux 3 Digital Camera ?

Button stuck, casuing unrepsonsiveness in all other buttons

\015 Hi, I have a Leica D-Lux 3. Recently I as shooting pictures throughout the day. I switched the camera off and then back on at one point and none of the buttons were working (I couldn't scroll through pictures I'd taken or even press the shutter to take a picture).Everything else is fine, I can see the LCD display, change the ratio of the picture, change the focus, go onto different modes. I discovered that when I went to the 'scene selection' mode on the camera (where you can choose different presets like sport mode, landscape mode etc) that the menu was constantly being scrolled up like the up button was being held down.I found that holding the down button, stopped the scrolling, but didn't actually scroll down and I still couldn't get the functions of any other buttons to work and I think that the problem is the computer is constantly being loaded with the functions of the 'up' button so can't process anything else. Does anyone know a solution to this problem?I haven't found a camera repair shop in the area I am in at the moment, but do you think it's something that can be fixed without sending it away for repair?\015

Answers :

Most buttons on a camera are a simple raised rubber pad over a printed circuit board. The button gets pressed, a concuctive material on the bottom of the rubber pad puts a short across a printed pad. If the camera senses a short across the down button, it will ignore all other buttons. You need to take the back off the camera and the rubber button pad will probably be right in the back, clean the contact with an alcohol Qtip and you should be OK.

Lens trouble My lens will not come out entirely on my camera, for when I push the button to turn it on, the lens tries to completaly come out but then quickly retracts back halfway and remains stuck about halfway open. The screen is black and the light flashes red everytime I turn on the camera, along with a noise of something stuck. I have tried using that little button that someone told me was the reset button, along with plugging it in, and charging it. None of this has helped me with fixing
